Following on from an assembly celebrating St Piran’s day and getting a taste for the Cornish Language, a group of 1st year pupils and their families headed to Gwithian Beach on Saturday to celebrate St Piran’s day with a token to give something back to Cornwall through a Beach Clean. We were blessed with gorgeous sunshine, and it was a lovely chance for some parents and pupils to get together for a great cause. Whilst Gwithian seems quite a clean beach at first, we were surprised by how much waste was gathered. There was a significant amount of microplastics as well as some larger debris. More beach clean events are coming up with an FTS ran clean on 3 April.
Mrs Thurlow would like to thank all of the families that came along to support the event, the café owners at the National Trust car park, as well as a big thank you from Surfers Against Sewage. They are very grateful to you all for taking some time out of your busy lives to give something back to the local community.
